Couldn't find what you looking for?


Directly following the use of a Nitrofuronian for a UTI, I was given Clindamycin for a possible staph infection on my leg (caused by a bug bite of sorts). On the 6th day of clindamycin use my face, neck, and back erupted in a red rash - many of which become pustules. My entire body is itching. I tried both benadryl and zyrtec, thinking it was an allergic reaction to the clindamycin. When that didn't work I was prescribed 20mg of Prednisone. The rash disappears for the most part, but once I quit taking prednisone it comes back within a day. I've been off the clindamycin for a week. The doctor gave me another round of prednisone.

There is still a pink dot on my leg left over from the bug bite/infection, although the pain, intense discoloration, and swelling have gone away. Is the rash possibly due to left over bacteria?

Can someone please help me?
